Sometimes you just need a classic, homemade, delicious chocolate chip cookie. But sometimes you need more. Like a chocolate chip sandwich cookie with marshmallow creme filling. ;-)
This recipe is an old favorite for me...like as old as when I was first beginning to love to bake. My sister and I grew up baking in the kitchen with my mom very often, and eventually we started baking on our own (I don't remember what ages we were though!). But I do remember that this chocolate chip cookie with marshmallow creme filling recipe was one that we made growing up. So needless to say, it brings back great memories. :) The recipe is from the cookbook pictured below. I "stole" the book from my mom...shhhh, don't tell!
For the chocolate chip cookies in this recipe, you can use whatever recipe you'd prefer - your family's favorite, the traditional Toll House recipe, or whatever! This particular time around I used my boyfriend's mother's recipe, which you can read about here if you'd like.
Marshmallow Creme Filling Ingredients:
-1 cup marshmallow creme (not fluff!)
-1/2 cup butter, softened
-1 and 2/3 cup powdered sugar
-1 tsp. vanilla extract
Mix the marshmallow creme and butter with an electric mixer in a medium bowl. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla, beating until smooth.
To prepare the sandwich cookies, for each sandwich, choose two cookies that are roughly the same size.
Spread some filling on the bottom cookie (I would estimate that I spread almost a tablespoon's worth of filling for each sandwich).
Put your second cookie on top of the filling, and voila, you have yourself an amazingly tasty chocolate chip sandwich cookie! It's best to put the sandwich cookies in the fridge so that the filling will set. I also stored my sandwich cookies in the fridge until serving them. They actually taste better cold, I think! Deeelicious.
So simple and so good. I really don't have much more to say about these cookies. Bottom line = you gotta try 'em. :)
